Introduction to candle making half day (beginners) in Stalbridge nr Sturminster Newton Dorset Somerset

About the Course

Come along to learn how to make container candles in a relaxed, friendly group (maximum 4 - adults only please) and make some candles to take home. Learn to use fragrances and colours to make candles in glass containers and teacups. This is a great place to start learning the craft of candle making.

During this 3 hour workshop you will find out about the different kinds of candles which can be made along with different types of wax for various candles, and how to add fragrances and colours. We will be concentrating on starting with the basics of container candle making.

You will be making two 20cl glass container candles as well as a teacup and saucer candle - all using soy wax - and by adding choices of colour and fragrances.

We will have time to discuss making other kinds of candles such as pillar candles, wax melts, floating candles, striped candles, and much more.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

You will take home two 20cl glass container candles as well as a teacup and saucer candle.

Please note that teacups and saucers are from a selection which I have collected and may not match exactly but you are free to have a look through the selection which I have and make your own choice. You are of course also welcome to supply your own - please contact me for advice before the Workshop if you would like to do this.

Tea, coffee, hot and cold drinks plus a plentiful supply of biscuits are included.

Please let me know if you have any food and fragrance or skin allergies when booking. Thank you.

My partner and I attended Sally's brilliant course on candle making using containers. Sally is an excellent tutor. She covered all aspects of candle making from health and safety, materials needed, adding colour and fragrances and the processes. The session was informal giving everyone the opportunity to experiment and ask questions. Sally makes everyone feel relaxed and able to achieve. After the session Sally follows this up with an email providing information on our learning experience as well as links to information for buying resources. A great session. Many thanks Sally.

I signed up for this workshop because I buy a lot of candles and thought it might be fun to try making my own for a change. It was such a good decision - Sally is the perfect tutor and makes the workshop a truly creative and informative occasion. I would recommend it for anyone who fancies trying something a little "crafty" - no previous experience required! I came home with three gorgeous smelling candles, one in my own cup and saucer which I am thrilled to display in my bathroom.
